Remember to remove yourselves from the linkshell, and encourage your friends to do so.
Together, we can end suffering. Together, we can defeat evil.
Reposting from previous thread because I didn't realize we were moving:
Hello xivg I am learning the ways of the shinobi
I am using the prepull suiton opener, what is my priority system after that though? What I have been doing is reapplying DE, then doing an AC to refresh huton, then SF, then Mut., based on timers.
After that I just sort of reapply things as they run out, use TA off CD, etc. I figure it's best to just use stuff asap instead of trying to wait to string a bunch of attacks together. However, there are times when I am faced with the choice to use an AC or reapply a dot, or reapply DE vs. reapply SF, that sort of thing.
Are my priorities huton > DE > Mut > SF?
The problem is in a 100% perfect scenario, the change is very marginal. Fights will never get this 100% perfect scenario, especially because the duration on the shield swipe proc is only like 6s long. I'm not saying its a nerf like some other people, I'm just saying the change is not something we will see change PLD at all currently. Alex 2 catering to PLD will.

Getting real tired of this
After months of playing with alts each in different GC's I learned one thing:
All GC's are pretty much the same and you will always get the worst groups regardless which one you join.
>Play the game
>Don't want to play
>Not playing the game
>Thinking of playing the game
>Always tired, health is dropping
>Stop going outside, miss weeks of school
mmo are worse than real drugs.
>level DRK so I can be a tanking wizard too
>want to acquire diamond breaker glamour so I can pretend my sword is all magick'd
>never any shiva ex farms in PF
>DF takes forever
>finally make a PF with guild leader
>first drop is my sword
Now all I have to do is actually go and tank some proper stuff.
Was there any word on how the whole fending/slaying accs thing was going to be handled? I thought I read somewhere that there'll be a point in going fending again.

Wiping to A3S forever is not fun, and we won't get any new endgame until at least March at the rate that SE has been going recently.
Retard, Shield Swipe was a DPS loss because it has a lower potency than the average of the Goring and Royal combos. It was barely an increase in ARR when you only had Halone. And there's nothing relevant that can be pacified. This change is making Shield Swipe into a skill you actually want to use instead of one that didn't need to be on your hotbars.
And it still means if some group's taken pity on you and let you OT you do less DPS over a long fight because you run out of TP that much sooner. It doesn't help PLD's current position in the slightest.
So I hear Yoshida doesn't give a shit about the North American/European audience. Would it be pointless to complain on the forum about the lack of gnath and (especially) moogle Beast Tribe quests?
>PLD will never stop crying
Mudra fix and tp reduction niggers, can't wait.
For the longest time, they've tied us behind their cars after their weddings. It's time for payback.
The road to ilvl170 is paved with the bodies of cute catboys
>officially swapping from MNK to NIN main in 3.1
I hoped PLD would get something nice enough to keep them in the game so we'd be required for INT debuff, but nope
Time to ride the Trick Attack wagon
It's not "solid damage", that's not how that works. Every time you use a GCD on Shield Swipe, you pay the cost of delaying all of your other GCDs by one GCD.
You compare it to the AVERAGE potency of your GCDs.
Average potency of Goring Blade's combo is 307. Average potency of Royal Authority's combo is 230. Average potency of Rage of Halone's combo is 203.
The average potency if you're gunning for max enmity (GB-RoH-RoH) is 238.
The average potency if you're rotating all three (GB-RoH-RA) is 247.
The average potency if you're gunning for maximum damage (GB-RA-RA) is 256.
All of these are substantially higher than the 210 you achieve through wasting a GCD on Shield Swipe. You effectively lose between 28 and 46 potency every time you use the GCD version of Shield Swipe.
The ONLY benefit to it is extending your TP, because the last relevant content that Pacification worked on is Ifrit HM. If you want to do PvP in this game, that's a personal problem.
Only the run animation seems really lazy.
I thought both male/female emotes were really cute.
Au ra guys easily have the most adorable dance, too.
I have an idea, instead of the stupid shitty shield swipe change, they made it so Clemency can be cast on enemies too, and deals half of what it would have healed in damage. So essentially 600 potency. I think in addition to that, making it so that blocking an attack with sheltron would make the next Clemency instant cast.
You get your dps increase without shitting on an already existing ability.
Allagan is better
and yes I am aware I'm not wearing the Allagan pants.
You are fucking retarded and should stop arguing class balance.
Clemency should be instant cast that procs off of Riot Blade so it's not a waste of a hotbar slot. In what thesaurus does clement suggest damage.
>stupid skin cancer that can't even be properly customized
>limited face/horn customization (even though Elezen have decent ear customization)
>have tail, so very few costumes actually looks good on them because SE is too lazy to put proper tail slots on equipment
>fucked up eyes (though that is mostly because of the player's shit taste, like half of the catslut population)
It is hard to like them when they are basically the virtual avatar of SE's laziness.
i'm so depressed right now, i got out of a vault run that took the entire allotted time 80% which was on the last boss
the healer just could not manage the mechanics of the fight no matter how hard we tried to teach her, we tried everything to make her job easier for her but she kept dying to the AoE and horse things, every, single, time.
i'm not even mad, normally id just brush it off but realizing someone can play that helplessly is beyond depressing. unless they were doing it on purpose..
Yeah but there is no other instance in the game in which a spell procs off of a weapon skill. It makes little sense.
I think it would make more sense for it to proc off of a sheltron block. Sheltron restores MP too you know.
3 baby opo-opos in a row
0 darklight cowl of healing
rigged shit game
I meant something like a 50%/guaranteed chance for your next Clemency to be instant. It could go anywhere - Riot Blade, Royal Authority - but Clemency needs to have an instant avenue to be of any worth currently.
>Disgracing immortal flames
What, your leader being outplayed by a bunch of midgets and niggers in blue coats and his second in comand being a whore spy wasn't disgrace enough for you guys?
Most Americans can't even speak the American language since America is made up mostly of illegals and for some reason America won't enforce immigration laws.
Also, it's obvious they don't want to turn pld op. I mean, if you played XI pld is the meta tank for all content in that game. Nin is a joke and war is a dps and in XI only a handful of the jobs are useful. Every other job is struggling to get into a spot in the party. I'm glad that XIV the devs are thinking about balance and trying to make all jobs viable.
not even that, but pc players would be fucked over too.
its just much easier to have them as is, anyways.
hotbar bloating is a fucking horrible thing to have, and some people say theyre struggling with it as is with some classes.
im still fucking up sometimes because my mudras are a little fast and bump into each other, but ive really got the hang of it i think
cute A CUTE
There's nothing wrong with finding him cute but you know guys like him. You give him a finger and he'll take your whole arm.
>if you play the game properly, you will never see a sight like this
DRK is fucking shit with low blow and it's trait.
It should have been Reprisal being on a normal recast of 20/30second whatever and the trait that when parried resets it. This way it allows it to be used for both magical and physical.
Who gives a shit about low blow and it's trait.
>I mean, if you played XI
Obviously you didn't play or did any content in the game worthwhile.
>pld is the meta tank for all content in that game. Nin is a joke and war is a dps and in XI only a handful of the jobs are useful.
Stop posting and be quiet, child.
>they dont want to turn pld op
So warrior being the best tank for anything is okay? DRK/PLD just get to wait on the porch and *sometimes* get let into the house to bang a hot mechanical boss in A5-8S?
Every job should perform the same. That's what they want, so that's how it should be, yet that's what it isn't.
Anyone else having issues with Rebornbuddy?
Latest update is making the program crash after clicking start.
I'm having issues with the captchas, why are they cut in half?
This. XI jobs may be "unique" but others suffer from being useless or not wanted in content. It's nice that all jobs in XIV are viable in any content.
The PLD problems is not the job, but because they made the raid a DPS check, and the devs said that they would avoid doing that and will focus more on making jobs viable, and do tank and healer checks mostly, and DPS coordination. This doesn't mean they won't make job adjustments though.
>tfw no longer on the list
Did you ever get rid of Tofu?
And what's being done about Elk?
>The final ever patch for XI.
I never played FFXI before but I almost want to play it now. A MMO with an actual final patch and a proper ending is quite rare (even though dead MMOs are very common) and I kind of want to see it just because of that.
No, because XI's development team will continue working on it.
There is nothing that can be done for XIV short of a drastic overhaul to Jobs and the combat system to accommodate something better.
YOU WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO USE THE LUCAVI/ESPERS ON MEANINGLESS SHIT
Maybe, maybe not.
XI doesn't really get much love from them when it started dying.
Maybe when XIV actually starts dying or when XV and VII remake get released, and SE doesn't have much to focus on.
Vjera is a pathetic tranny who is addicted to sex, talking about sex, and trying to get other people to talk about sex so that they can try to "get into your head" and manipulate you for some indiscernible reason
i hate you, but that was a good one..
i guess thats ok for some people here, seeing as the way they are they wont last 10 years either.
same here, but i kinda feel itd be a waste of my time to buy a game thatll literally die on me.
No, it's not. As it is now it's safe, cheap, and profitable. They have no reason to risk losing that by going outside what they've been doing so they'll stay the course. When the game becomes an issue they'll re-reboot it, fire Yoshi, and make an ever more dumbed down, streamlined, linear WoW clone.
>no mention of best spell in the game in patch notes
GCD being so fucking long makes combat painfully slow, and forcing people to put not insignificant time into leveling classes they have zero interest in solely for mandatory cross-class abilities.
How the fuck do you play monk?
So far my rotation has been:
Dragon Kick>Twin Snakes>Demolish
And I refresh Touch of Death whenever it runs out since it does not kill my rotation much
And I go for Positional damage every single chance I get
Blood For Blood is always used after Demolish
Internal Release is used after the first Bootshine, but never with Blood for Blood
Howling Fist on CD, but prefered with BfB or IR
I have no idea how to use Perfect Form
Most, if not all, of the people who disregard the constant warnings of her being a terrible person, are lonely and unstable themselves.
Generally by the time they get sick of being non-stop asked for penis pics, Vjera already has dirt on them that they don't want getting out.
I don't really mind that extra .5 seconds people are bitching about but yeah, I agree with cross-class skills.
But if they make cross-class skill variants to each class, people would then complain more about how every class is the same.
Just bring back Uematsu tbqh.
Are Miqo'te by far the most boring characters in this fucking game? Seriously, they all look alike, and this goes for both, males and females. Doesnt help that, before aura came out, it felt like 80% of the playerbase played miqotes.
Now it seems like 50% miqote and 30% aura. And 1% Roegadyn
noun: megalomaniac; plural noun: megalomaniacs
a person who is obsessed with their own power.
a person who suffers delusions of their own power or importance.
A man with a mutilated penis is not a woman. He didn't experience going from a girl into a woman. He didn't experience that horrible part of growing up and having to learn to deal with boobs. He didn't have a first period, or the embarassing smells and periods afterwards. He didn't experience the cynical anger that came with feeling betrayed by his own body when everyone else thought he was fine. He didn't have to deal with the emotional rollercoaster, moodswings, or other things that come with womanhood.
Taking some pills, being ostracized by your friends/family, having a hard time finding a bathroom, and getting your dick sliced up are totally different problems...none of which are what you go through becoming a woman.
Vjera isn't a woman.
Just hit level 50 for the first time
What do I do now that doesn't have to do with the main quest? I know my job has a level 50 quest and I think the company will give me a dungeon or two. What else?
Who are you top 3 NPC of each race/clan/gender in XIV?
Well if anything you can take the fact that she's posted penis pics and steam logs of multiple people from here, and realize why nobody posts "logs". I have some logs of conversations saved myself but I'm obviously not going to fucking post them.
>about to win
I see why people say this bitch cheats now.
>queued up for Wolves den
>90k in the black screen during the transition
>so few people doing it I'll be known as "that one with the bad connection"
Welp, looks like I'm not doing anymore WD tonight.
It's more potency than your average attacks, while properly spacing Demolish at times so you never have to clip it or leave it off.
It's well worth the 20 TP, yet god help you if anyone catches you using it.
Which is why MNKs use it sparingly. MNKs use Fracture to pad out their GCD so they can reapply Demolish without it dropping off for a few seconds, which translates to a big damage loss.
Fracture is especially good if you happen to "need" to use it when B4B/IR have been popped.
My post was referring to her constantly bothering you for penis pictures. Where do you think she got the penis pictures she posted to begin with?
If you don't believe it, it's not my problem man.
Is not that great, I tell you.
Most of the time you get a group that only knows how to be a ball. They have no strategy at all sometimes, just "stay together and kill shit kek"
It's really not. You've got a couple of extra OGCDs to manage at 60 and your opener is a little bit more busy, but you're still having your hand held through your combos. The recently extended GL duration+Form Shift makes it even easier to maintain GL3 and as of 3.0 Demolish lines up perfectly so that you only need to reapply it every third combo.
Every character would look pretty similar from someone else, regardless of race.
Midlander males have it worse, though. Almost everyone I see uses the default face, default hair and default voice, max height too.
> does SE actively know their game houses a ton of useless abilities?
How do we tell the moonpeople that their game sucks and that they need to fix it?
>inb4 hugbots "It's fine"
My plan is to go WAR, but the WAR AF hides the face and whatnot.
>implying anyone who plays this game even has a social life to kill in the first place
Besides, it's not like they can't just disappear. Only the most obsessed people would track them via lodestone.
I hope they remove cross-class skills and instead give Jobs something like the PvP skills where we can put points into them to enhance.
Like putting Points into Cleric Stance to reduction Healing Reduction rate.
Look man, the FFXIV team is comprise of the FFXI team and it's obvious they haven't learned shit from XI. XIV relies on fan service to keep the player going while basically being a water down wow, Yoshi seems to be oblivious on how to fix jobs(Pld is still a mess and instead of fixing the job just going to force players to use pld), content wise is a drain(All the content in 3.1 players will be done in a week or so and then once again will have nothing to do), the community for some reason is just bad and I don't mean the erpers I'm talking like this games community appeals to the lowest common denominator; people who still do dumb shit and get mad at any sort of criticism(Just look at /r/ffxiv and the OF), I mean holy shit the mmo tera which is a bigger weeaboo game and erpers are more stilled than the average FFXIV player. Also, the story of XIV is complete crap and for some reason XIV can't do cutscense right. Like I'm watching a cut scene and then all of sudden I'm promote to hit a key to continue to the dialogue instead of just letting some things flow.
XI at least filtered out the casuals and kept them from ruining mmos because devs are forced to cater to them all in the name of profits by the jews.
>Only like 2 look good on most races

I wonder why the fuck they made such a lame character editor (lame is a bit harsh, lackluster might be a better word). In most MMOs people dont really pay attention to the face anyway, but FFXIV has such nice aesthetics and character models that people do pay attention to faces.
I guarantee you I was worse anon.
What to do that is worthwhile until Tuesday besides capping. I don't want to try and look for a raid,
that'll only give me a headache of french faggots
But they are.
>We will never get the best things about 1.0 ever again
>No more seamless, large zones
>No more high-quality textures
>No more good graphics overall
>No good cinematograhy
Even if 1.0's zones are copy-pasted, it looks more natural than how flat, blocky and unnatural the terrain of the new zones are.
And the cutscenes? Even 1.0's side quest cutscenes are better than what you would see in 2.x and 3.x MSQ cutscenes.
Remember: This could be you.
Do not associate with Them. For your own good.
I think I joined because I liked this armor best on me. But I think Elite Flames would look good, too.
Plus winning would be really nice. But my favorite midlander is an Adder, so..
I missed being an elf. Why did Au Ra turn out so horribly?
We could have had actual demon girls. Seriously missed opportunity.
I don't get it. They weren't even playing badly. they didn't die. They didn't lose hate when it wasn't mathematically impossible for them to keep it. They knew the mechanics. They had decent gear (mostly law and baldur, some i160 vendor).
Why couldn't they do damage? How is it possible to fuck up your rotation this badly and not realize something is wrong? I would've said something but man I don't even know where to start when I see this stuff.
>gear level is i145 as DRG
>doing like 700 on boss fights
I have no idea if this is even halfway decent, all I've really done is Aetherochemical Research and Thoridan.
I'm scared to get laughed out of the EX dungeons or make it bad for people.
>hear healing sounds in a town
>90% chance its an AST spamming his shit
Why are AST players such obnoxious attentionwhores? Wouldnt suprise me if these are the same AST players who cant heal properly in dungeons and use bole on DDs and ewer on melee classes who dont need MP at all.
>3k damage delt
I do more than that interrupting other healers with aero spam.
yay i finally got all 3 tank jobs to 60, now im working on healers
my white mage is already 51, there's pretty much no fate groups ever, is it faster to just spam fates all day or should i be doing dungeons as well?
i also have 90 leves, should i use those big leves all up?
>tfw no sugar daddy to buy you $1200 with off games

I love it when the healer and other dps appreciate me pulling instead of the slow ass tank.
These always make me feel a little better. I am trying to transition from scholar to actual DPS and my parses are fucking humiliating, but at least I'm not these guys.
nigga just say you like chubby girls
I know this feel.
don't need to be good at it, my only goal right now is just getting everything to 60, once i've achieved that, then i'll pick which jobs to actually play at endgame
learning and gearing a class for endgame months before i'll actually be doing it is a waste of time, i could be using that time to speed up leveling the other classes, or the classes could change between now and when i actually get around to endgame
i did all the roulettes today on white mage and it didn't seem that hard, i was using stone/stone ii/aero/aero ii/holy most of the time as well, so i think knowing the basics on each class should be enough to get by until 60
How the fuck do you play blm in pvp? Every time I try to play it people run out of range for my spells and I'm left to do is be some sleep and bind bitch while just waiting for my lb bar to fill up.

What's the least damaging BLM rotation I could do without seeming like I'm being bad on purpose? I'm thinking I could do scathe spam, or maybe Flare>wait for fire buff to wear off>wait for mana tic>flare
>There is some truth to this
>get outta here lel
geez sorry for agreeing with something
A fit girl that takes care of herself is nice
A skinny girl with a high metabolism is nice
A slightly chubby girl that has self confidence is nice
Any of these taken to an extreme is gross imo
BLM is all about flying under the radar.
If you can get yourself ignored, there's no other job that can kill quite like you can.
Ley Lines are basically a bullseye, begging the opposing teams to come kill you.
Use them very carefully, sometimes it's best to not touch them at all.
I want you to leave if you aren't true to your feelings.
I'm only 47, doesn't seem too complicated.

How do they even reach 60
I get that the NIN and... whatever the pink-haired c@ is supposed to be, are being physically overpowered by the MNK and WAR after some really clumsy attempts at attacks, but why? What's the context?
>How do they even reach 60
The same way this guy did. You just piggyback off of players who actually know how to play the game, because they are probably too lazy/polite/disgusted to say anything about it. Most of the people who are this bad probably have no idea how bad they actually are, though.
I remember this one time in particular I was playing with another BLM in Snowcloak, and I was doing a lot more damage than him. He actually asked me how I was casting Flare so much, so I stopped the dungeon to briefly go over BLM aoe rotations with him. I was so happy that someone actually asked for advice to better themselves...until after the next pull when he said "i dont think this does more damage than mine and its harder XD forget it" and just went back to casting his fire2 until oom-> blizz2 until full rotation.
My feet are kinda veiny but ok
You know she likes it anon, just look at that face. Now picture it looking up at you after you've orgasmed too soon because shes so pretty and good at what she does.
i like dudes andlalas arent for lewds, anon.
weirder thing is that that lala is kind of
self-inserting for me, so please dont say those things.
>I want to pre-ejac to a blonde little girl because she's cute and good at sucking dick
Well, what is it after getting flare?
Set inventory interface to expanded.
